Stagecoach Watering Hole was one of those places that we passed up on the way to somewhere else. Steve was driving and I asked him to go back so he turned around and back we traveled. We actually do a lot of that and luckily he humors me when I find something that I would like to check out. Needless to say, I had to walk around and grab a couple of photos. There was nothing around that explained the significance of this place in the woods of Maine, other than a lot of signage that ... Click to continue reading & see more photos
Travel has become more important to me as I have aged. I used to be a homebody, content to stay home most of the time. Now, I love to see new places and also enjoy photographing them. We traveled in our vehicle, on our motor yacht, and now we will travel with our RV.
Belhaven, NC is a quaint fishing village in Beaufort County, located in North Carolina's Inner Banks region. I love the town website description. It says "Belhaven, cuddled in the midst of Pantego Creek and Pungo River. Once known as Jack's Neck, then Bellport, finally the town became known as Belhaven which means "beautiful harbor".

Wildflowers were still in bloom at Pungo last week. Believe it or not, I was up at daybreak and got photos of these gorgeous morning glories.

These were found at the Pocosin Lake Wildlife Refuge - Pungo ... Click to continue reading & see more photos
Bears, bears, bears! Last week Steve and I decided to do our RV shakedown trip in an area where I would be able to photograph wildlife. More specifically, I wanted to be able to take photos of bears. Our RV site was about 10 miles from the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Center - Pungo Unit. Pungo is about a two and a half hour drive from my home so by camping out, we were able to be there for more time and more importantly, at dawn and dusk when the animals are usually most ...

Our RV shakedown "camping" trip is FINALLY behind us. Why do I have the word "camping" in quotes? Saying that I was camping makes me smile. It doesn't seem like camping when you are actually in a tiny home. Steve and I camped in a tent for the first fifteen or so years of our marriage and always in remote out-of-the-way places. We have come a long way, baby!! :-)We purchased the RV in May and had planned to take a short shakedown trip and then a much longer trip to Maine. ... Click to continue reading & see more photos
